Bread Log: April 18, 2010

Friday, April 16 – I made two batches of dough! First I made a batch of Light Whole Wheat bread with 2 cups of white whole wheat flour instead of 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Then I made a batch of olive oil dough.

Saturday, April 17 – We made calzones for lunch with olive oil dough. I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled on garlic salt and parmesan before baking. They turned out huge so we cut them in half. They were really good though.

Sunday, April 18 – Today we had a second late Easter party since so many people couldn’t make it on Easter. I made a batch of rolls, half with light whole wheat dough, half with olive oil dough. I brushed them with butter and baked in muffin tins.

Also, I learned about fairy bread today. Apparently it’s an Australian staple at kids’ parties and it’s just buttered bread with sprinkles on top! It looks so cute and simple. My little cousin is turning two next month and I’m already scheming about making it to bring for her birthday. I was trying to think of different things I could do to make it cool, and then I thought… colored bread! I could tint my bread dough pink or purple. Now I just want to make my next batch of dough pink. Is that crazy?
